Thick Outline Without Matte Resize (Due to Blurring on the Pointy Parts)?

Hey there. I’ve used the Matte Resize + Matte Blur combination to thicken up my character outlines for a while, and - though it typically works - it doesn’t seem to know what to do with pointy ends on the characters; it just “fades out” rather than coming to a crisp point (see attached image for an example).

Anyone know an alternate solution to this, besides manually tracing my characters every single time with thicker outlines?

As I’ve said, below is an attached image for an example. On the left is the resized outline, on the right is the drawing as-is, and I’ve circled the problem areas.
